Emma Corrin and Harry Styles star in new film My Policeman together in the hottest casting since Don’t Worry, Darling, also starring Haz. Here’s the lowdown on the movie, which is based on a best-selling book.

Production on My Policeman wrapped last year, with The Crown star Emma Corrin starring opposite her pal Harry Styles in the queer romance movie, and the first full trailer is officially here! You can watch the brand new trailer at the top of this page!

Harry and Emma play a young couple, Tom and Marion, who get wrapped up in a love triangle with an older man in the 1950s.

Six actors will play the main three roles as their younger and older counterparts, with Rupert Everett playing Haz's character's lover, Patrick, in the future.

The younger version of Tom's male lover is 38-year-old David Dawson, who will play museum curator Patrick at the start of the relationship.

As fans await even more updates on My Policeman, we’ve got all the details so far, from the release date to the book it's based on…

Is there a trailer for My Policeman?

There is a trailer for My Policeman and you can watch it at the top of this page! Harry, Emma and David look exceptional in the first look, with their characters' intertwining relationships evidently as complicated and passionate as the book tells.

Harry's character Tom is seen marrying Emma Corrin's character Marion and having a steamy embrace with secret lover Patrick.

What is My Policeman about, is it based on a book?

My Policeman is based on the book of the same name by Bethan Roberts and while the film will no doubt have some tweaks for the big screen, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what it’ll be about based on the book’s description.

Set in the 1950s, My Policeman follows Marion and Tom’s love story after she falls in love when he teaches her to swim at Brighton beach. A few years later Tom, a policeman, meets Patrick at a museum and Patrick becomes besotted with him in a love affair that would have been considered unacceptable in that era.

It’s safer for Tom to marry Marion but she must share her policeman with Patrick, embracing their threesome relationship until jealousy breaks one of them.

The story flashes forward to the 90s when an elderly Patrick re-enters Marion and Tom’s lives, with life-changing consequences.
